Investigators search for car stepsisters were seen in before they were found dead under bridge

Investigators said the two women were in the car on Tuesday evening.

ROME, Ga. — The GBI is looking for assistance in finding a vehicle tied to two women whose bodies were found beneath a bridge in Floyd County earlier this week.

Thirty-one-year-old Trevena Campbell and 19-year-old Vanita Richardson, both from Rome, were found under Etowah Bridge at Loop 1 near Rome on Wednesday.

The GBI says they are looking for Richardson's gold 1997 Toyota Corolla with Georgia tag number RTJ6295. 

They issued a photo of that type of vehicle for reference, seen below. The car pictured is not actually the specific car they are looking for.
